Every Mustang seat is made in the United States by true craftsmen who take pride in transforming the highest quality, raw materials into a finished product--all under one roof in our New England facility. Mustang manufatures comfortable Mustang seats for Harley, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki and Victory Motorcycles.
Q: Why buy a Mustang seat?
A: When it hurts to ride, it’s not fun anymore. Whether for you, your passenger or both of you. A good seat can make every mile pleasurable. You should change your motorcycle seat if you think about your seat when you ride.
Q: What makes Mustang seats unique?A: Mustang seats are designed using special controlled-density foam, which is the basis for the comfort in our seats. Mustang also builds a baseplate which aligns the spine and places the driver at the proper riding angle, thereby relieving back stress. We complement our engineering expertise and high-quality manufacturing with first-rate customer service.
Q: Why are “aftermarket” seats more expensive than replacement stock seats?
A: Most motorcycle manufacturers invest the majority of their time and money researching the bike engine and aerodynamic design of their motorcycles--not the seat.
A tremendous amount of planning and design goes into preparing to produce a motorcycle seat.
Next comes the tooling to construct the actual baseplate (how the seat attaches to the motorcycle). Mustang engineers take pride in designing a baseplate with far greater strength than most stock pans. Baseplates receive black epoxy, powder coating on both sides for complete rust-proofing.
Hidden inside each seat is the foam. First, a mold must be hand sculpted--carefully contoured for support, posture and comfort as well as pleasing lines to complement the particular motorcycle make and model. Then, a mold is made and we mix the chemicals to concoct our own special Mustang recipe of liquid foam. After decades of experience, Mustang has perfected the right components for creating our own controlled-density foam (cushion) for each particular seat thickness.
Finally, the pattern is hand-designed that will best suit the shape of the foam and the flow of the motorcycle. Each cover is hand-stitched by an expert seamstress at a real sewing machine.
Components are then hand-assembled, with the cover finally riveted (not stapled!) to the baseplate.
Q: What should a customer look for when shopping for a motorcycle seat?A: Read the warranty. Fully understand the return policy; how long is it? Does it cover the “break-in” period? Is there a re-stocking fee? How does the seat mount? Do you need extra hardware? Turn the seat over and inspect how the edge of the cover is finished: ragged or hemmed? Is the cover stapled or riveted to the baseplate? What maintenance is required for the cover material? Most importantly: talk to your friends, read reviews and comments! Look around and ask riders with similar bikes about their experiences
